Awning Ideas / February 24, 2019 / Gertrude Fisher
Does your restaurant fit the neighborhood? Does it stand out in a productive and meaningful manner? And is the restaurant s signage appropriate for the space? Failure to pass these basic tests may mean a loss of business - something no restaurant owner wants to see happen. Awnings and canopies are ideal ways to invite a positive dining experience. Awnings are both functional and promotional items. On one hand they protect patrons from the elements providing a measure of wind shield shade during sultry summer evenings and of course protection from rain and even snow. But their aesthetic value is equally key. Retractable or fixed and made from a variety of materials namely aluminum fabric mesh and combinations of the three awnings can immediately set the mood via their shape and logos.
Once the internal brainstorming is complete it s time to send in the reserves: the services of a top-notch signage company that can deliver the message in an effective and yet subtle manner. Innovative outdoor signs and awnings are essentially an extension of your traditional marketing and branding campaign. Think about it this way: a recent survey by the University of Cincinnati reveals that next to television customers find traditional signs and awnings the most affective means of advertising and that half of American shoppers would like to see larger signs - especially when driving. What s more two-thirds of respondents ages 18-24 said they had even driven past a store whose sign or awning they failed to read or worse yet find.
At the same time you also need to concentrate on the style pattern and color of the awning fabric to ensure that the features complement the exterior style and decor of your home. Based on your choice you can buy the awnings in a variety of colors. But you must remember that each color has its own meaning and significance. Also you need to choose an awning color that perfectly complements the color of your home exterior. Red: You have option to choose from several shades of red awnings. Also most shades can match the yellow white and tan exterior paints. You can further enhance the appeal of your home exterior by combining the right shade of blue paint and red awnings. However if the exterior paint has green pigments you have to exercise care while choosing the red awnings.
